they are trending more like we saw in january of 1998, and if it continues, february was the heavier rain month. you will see a little light rain at times tonight. the system is a small compact one dropping to the south. generally over land. it doesn't have a lot of moisture to work with, but the north bay, the coast, and the peninsula still a chance of seeing measurable rain as you saw right there around santa rosa. as we go towards the afternoon, clearing skies. temperatures tomorrow in the upper 50 sts and 60s san franci. 62 in the forecast for oakland. as we move forward, big surf hitting the coast as we talked about on tuesday. and again on thursday, probably a bigger swell here. a long swell hitting the coast here.
high surf advisories and warnings could be possible this week. high pressure will be preventing any of the rains from impacting us. so a high build, patchy dense fog, but look at the daytime temperatures wednesday and thursday. the warmest days of the week, upper 60s, and by thursday we could see 70s around the bay area mainly for the south bay and the peninsula. for north bay, as long as the fog holds off to the afternoon, temperatures climbing into the 60s. drier weather. aside from the weak system dropping into the north bay, that is about as dry as complete-day forecast has looked in about three weeks. the second half of the week, storm one breaking down that ridge. as we head towards next weekend staying tuned right now looks like a good system with wind and rain coming in. this will be saturday into sunday. the second half of the weekend a
completely different forecast. no more 70s, back into your january time weather. rain for friday, perhaps a stormy day on sunday which all holds true on the long-range forecast. right now super bowl sunday still looks like february weather. tracking the rain coming on in, our rainfall totals to date with that forecast holding and moving into february. the bay area right now 82% to 121% of average and that long-range forecast, if it holds up, those numbers likely to go up into febru@py. so stay informed as the storms arrive, here is the nbc bay area a and how it works. >> it is easy to get connected to the weather outside by staying inside. touch the radar on the weather page and you can zero in on your own neighborhood to see if it is

their first 44 games this season, making them clearly the best team in baskeal welcome back to the nbc bay area. the warriors are clearly the best team in basketball, right? they're only two games better than san antonio which is why everyone is looking forward to monday night's show down at oracle. get ready for a good one. the spurs and warriors at 7:30 tomorrow night. san antonio will be without tim duncan because he has a sore right knee. he is averaging nine points and even rebounds this year, but without duncan, they still
realize they're taking on a very dangerous team. >> i don't believe it at all. i think, you know, if you need to win or lose, i think you're turning in the wrong direction anyway. what you're capable over. >> over to football, for the second straight year anquan bolden is a finalist for the walter peyton man of the year award.ñi aside from leading the niners for the third straight season, he is being recognized for his foundation that benefits under privileged children. peyton manning and the broncos are taking on tom brady and the patriots. fourth and ten, brady throws a
40 yard dump to rob gronkowski. fourth and goal. gronk with two defenders. he is amazing. but the pats have to go for two. brady under pressure. he has a pressure because he is picked off in the end zone. denver wins 20 to 18. my entire career, i have always said i have great respect for tom. as a player, a friend, and for the job he has done as a quarterback for that franchise. and for coach belichick. i think this is my seventh time playing the patriots with brady as the quarterback. and the sharks are dangerous again. tonight they will host the l.a. kings who will be missing one of their key players. lucic will sit this one out.tóma
sucker bunch against arizona last night. the kings are 3-3-1 in their last seven games. they have scored 21 goals in their last ten games. san jose won two of the first three meetings. including the final fame before the christmas break at theñi staples center. that will do it for now.ñi cardinals are leading against the panthers right now.
